Ever since I was told they were edible as a kid I have loved mallow berries. They're a favorite spring treat of mine. But I’ve never seen them for sale in a store. Luckily mallow is a fairly common weed in this area.
|They grow from small purple flowers|
|The berries are less than a half inch across.|

|peel back the wrapping to get the yummy juicy berry|
|eat the berry|
